Row 23 is bulkhead and looks nice to me. Or row 35 is awesome because it has about 10 feet of legroom because it is an exit row.  Big thumbs up

Bulkhead row 23 is good. Emergency exit row 35 is even better. However, don't expect to get it simply by request. Bulkhead 23A and 23L are basinet enabled seats reserved for mothers travelling with infants. The rest of row 23 is reserved for Club 2000, FPRouge, FPBleu, and other High Contribution passengers. In the event that there arent any, then give it a shot. There are also bulkheads on row 36EFG, however 36E & 36G are basinet seats, and are reserved for mothers with infants. In the event that 36F is empty, I doubt you'd want to sit there, with 2 infants on either side of you.

Emergency exits are reserved for very tall passengers, and are sometimes given out at the gate. Unless you're over 6'4", I'd advise you to ask at the gate. Whatever you do, don't sit on row 31ABC/JKL or 48 AB/KL, no recline whatsoever. Best of luck.

I'm a bit uninformed when it comes to international travel. So if you make a reservation, you don't get your seat assignment when you book your ticket? Do all airlines including US based airlines do it this way?

I think it depends on the type of ticket that you have. Usually persons with full fare Y economy class tickets are allowed to chose their seats. G class and L class passengers usually have them assigned at the airport. However, in the case of a full flight, then no matter how much you pay, your seating is done at the airport. In addition, cotrary to popular belief, no one can reserve an emergency exit or bulkhead. The airport staff assigns them on the day of the flight.

I've reserved an Emergency exit before. Seating is done on a first come first serve basis. Those who book first get the first choice in seats. I always fly with an L class fare, and I always manage to find a good seat. Just have a printed version of the aircraft's seating chart handy when you book, or if you book online, you can select your seat.
