Question Seats on 737-700

I have my first 73G flight coming up and the seatmap is not included on SeatGuru. Any pointers on seats to choose or avoid? Thanks!

seatguru has added this since last week. it looks really really bad in coach. so bad it makes continental's 73G look good....

Business Class not much better

Flew in 2F last week Las -Atl and the recline was so limited it was almost non existent. But for only $35 (oops) I can't complain too loudly,

Has FL started to receive their own 73Gs yet, or are they still relying on charters?

airtran's 73G's are operated by airtran. the wet-lease aircraft operated by ryan international were A320's.

airliners.net has some 73G cabin views:

coach
business

WSJ today has an article on new seats in Y on various airlines, including the recaro seats on airtran's 73G's. the seats are spaced at 30" pitch, but are shaped to allow more space at the knees than standard seats. is it good enough to compensate for 30" pitch? let's just say i have my doubts, but i'd love to hear from anyone who's flown coach on one of these....
