Federal officials say a man faces fraud charges for booking free air travel by pretending to be an airline employee and reselling the tickets.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles said that 37-year-old Gilbert Myers Jr. of Atlanta remained in custody Friday on $75,000 bond after pleading not guilty.

Officials say Myers was arrested earlier this week at a hotel in Beverly Hills, California, after agreeing to meet a potential traveler who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent.
