THAI award flight fees higher for business than economy?

Doing some planning for next year and noted that the 'fees and surcharges' for a business class redemption are higher than for economy class.

Specifically, I was looking at BKK-ICN-BKK. A biz return is THB 5635 and eco is THB 3665 - exactly THB 1700 difference.
I also note that the fees for a paid ticket are the same irrespective of class (and lower) at THB 1535.

Has this always been the case? Or is this something new. I have never made an economy redemption

yes - it has been the case since the introduction of different (higher) fuel surcharges for Business/First Class vs. Economy Class about two, three years ago.
