When I first got my seats assigned and I found out that they where emergency exit rows I flipped because I thought that there wouldn't be a window. I have done some more research on the matter and came up with this theory.
The seats are placed behind the emergency exit rows and do have a window, a regular window.
Now can any one tell me if this theory is true? I just don't want my first A340-600 flight to be ruined by not having a window.

Thats strange as most airlines do not assign the emergency exit row until u are at checkin, with BA u cant even assign it on the phone or net. What if they assign it to a child or old woman. The seating will then get changed at check in

I was surprised that they assigned us the seats as well. My mom Iberia that my dad had a bad knee so we could get a bulk-head seat but they gave us the emergency exit row. I was complaing before because I didn't think it had a window but now I am loving that I have the seats!

In some exit rows, yes the first row of seats are set back but even so you may find that your window is slightly behind you. If you're sitting back in your seat, you won't be able to see out and forward. This was my experience on a BA 777 to YYZ the other week.
(Even if this is case, (a) you can still see out and (b) it's worth it for the space. Ahhh...)
