Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

Hi, we travel to Bangkok every year with Qantas in Business. Looking at the dates we want to travel there is not much difference in price between the 2 fares at the moment. Is it worth paying a bit extra for Thai First as there are no QF deals at the moment for travel in the next 3 months whereas Thai price seems consistent?
We have flown many times on new (and old) Qantas A330 business and as nice as it is the food is usually average/bad on the Qantas Bangkok flights, crew is usually great, so is it worth the extra for the first experience on Thai? We love the whole travel experience and lounges would be a consideration in the decision. I understand it is an older product on Thai but love the 747 on Qantas on our trips to Japan so happy to fly that aircraft. We have never flown any first class.
We are Qantas Gold so would also join the Thai FF program and start to make some progress with Star Alliance? Does that even add any value to the decision? Maybe even move our overseas travel plans based on this in the future.
Have watched you tube reviews for Thai First and they seem to be 50/50?
Appreciate any thoughts and feedback.
