Legroom on United 737-700 is awful in rear of plane.

I dislike the fact that on Economy you cannot select a seat and my partner and I were separated

Uneventful flight, as it should be

Jan 17, 2018

Almost missed connection, had to jog and arrive at gate as they were closing the door. Not helpful on flight in helping me get off plane faster from back of plane. That was hair raising.
