Yes they do.
Do a dummy reservation on TG site or take a look at SeatGuru to see for yourself.

Thank you. Can you get to seat selection on Thai before paying to check what seats are free?

there is an excellent sticky thread in this Forum about seat configurations of all TG aircraft types, which is better updated then seatguru:
Thai Airways International Seat Configuration Overview
and also TG has seat maps on their Website and from their you see, that there are some rows of Y on the upper deck

and if you had a seat like me in the second cabin of J and have heard the noise of the y class passengers inflight, then you do not need above as you know there are Y on the upper deck...

Yes. I am sure at some point in the past they restricted the upper deck to specific fare buckets, but may not currently be the case.

That's correct.
Awards and higher fares are not restricted - can choose anywhere.

It is a nice little cabin, rather than the huge congress center downstairs. The storage compartments but the windows are convenient as well.

It is very quiet up there You can disembark quicker maybe if you are downstairs between door 1 and 2,but as they seem to let lower deck only go after first and business class, you may well be quicker of than most of the lower deck. But I guess that depends on the staff of the day.

Boarding signs guides you to walk to end of the lower deck and take the stairs up. But if you are Star Gold you might as well take the business class door upstairs and get your seat quicker during priority boarding

I've sat in the last row of Business with economy behind me on many flights on various airlines and have never been bothered by noise from economy behind. What kind of "noise" are you referring too?

The upstairs economy seats are still in a different fare bucket than downstairs. The cheapest available economy rates often do not include upstairs or the front half of downstairs economy.

Even if you have paid for the cheapest fare is there an option to pay to sit in the top deck?

Possibly you may be able to select any Y seat when conducting OLCI at T-24 - of course UD seats my have already been allocated to others on higher fare classes in advance.

The only way to pay would be to pay the fare difference to a more flexible fare (K class or better), that would open up the seat map prior to OLCI.
