Checked in online, no aisle or window seats availibale (same thing while booking), the flight according to KVS is nearly full, is there a chance that in the airport there will be aisle seats availibale?

Chances are good.

It is likely that someone who has reserved an aisle or window seat will get an upgrade at the gate. When they do, it will leave their seat available.

Get there ahead of time and ask the agent nicely.

Out of curiosity, how do you figure this one out? If the flight is almost full, as the OP said, it's not so likely that people will get to be upgraded (assuming it's almost full across all classes)
Besides, they don't always upgrade people, even when they do have space...
