I'm flying SEA-AMS on 8/12, I already spoke on the phone to NW and they had only isle seats available but told me to try again on check-in. Do I have better chances getting a window seat by going really early from the agent at the counter or from the one at the gate?

I'll try the online checkin but I was able to get better seats before from the gate agents even though the online checkin showed only B/E seats on a narrow body. I guess I was just curious how and when they had become available.

There are seats held for airport assignment, that can not be given out ahead of time. Also, there are inevitably a few frequent flyer upgrades that also might dislodge a few more seats. Check in early. If not available at the counter, try again at the gate. You'll probably get it.

Depending on your flight's load, you should be able to get a window seat due to blocks instituted by NW until time of check-in. Get there early, put in your request and I'm sure the gate agents will do their best to accomodate it.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
