Least expensive premium class from USA to India?

Hi -

I'm flying from STL to India in October or November. I have 120k miles on American, which is enough to get a free RT flight to Delhi (seats avail in Nov) but I would like to fly in premium economy or business class.

What's my best and least expensive business class option to fly to India? (I might fly in and out of Delhi, or possibly into Delhi and home from Mumbai.)

I'd love to fly business class on American so I get the points but business class is around $5000. United has a nonstop from NY to DEL but I don't see a premium economy option. Maybe they have economy plus? Even if they do, I'm thinking that the price of a coach ticket plus upgrade to economy plus would only be a few hundred less than premium economy on British Air or Virgin Atlantic - either of which would probably be much roomier.

Looks to me like premium economy may be my best option... BA and VA both have options around $2400 RT to Delhi. (Which is better?)

Is there another option I should consider?
