Question Booking class for fares on Thai website

I get the feeling I'm missing something really obvious since I couldn't find any previous threads about this, but... where can I find the booking class for fares listed on the Thai website?

In particular, I'm looking at SIN-BKK-NRT fares, and I'm getting a confusing slew of "THAI SAVER PLUS", "I ESCAPE SAVER ADVANTAGE" and "Brand name not yet defined" (!), and eg. "I ESCAPE" helpfully tells me "No mileage accrual for V class. 100% mileage accreal for Q class." So which one is it?

Time to stop fiddling about with the Intartubes and go talk to a travel agent, I guess

The TG website doesn't make it obvious but you can get to that fare bucket information. Select one of the fares offered and proceed to the screen where the itinerary is priced, then click on the 'Fare basis & Booking Class information'. A pop-up window will reveal the information you desire.

Ta! Turns out that not only are the super-cheapies useless (V), but the not quite-so-supercheapies are useless as well (W). The website offers a Q fare for ~S$950, but a travel agent managed to pull the same for S$800. Still almost twice the price of the $430 V fare though...
