Best price for return flight to Cape Town in upper (business) class

I am looking for business class flight to and from Cape Town from London Heathrow leaving on 13th November and coming back on the 2nd December preferably with BA (+/- 1 day).

It has to be upper class as I've been really poorly and don't think I'd be able to do the trip without the queue-free check-in, lounge and flatbed onboard.

The best I have found is £2,111 inc taxes with BA, which is preferred as I can then fly with my family, but if, say, Virgin had flights significantly cheaper leaving a couple of days after or returning a couple of days earlier I will definately be interested.

I'm going to get my first bit of sunshine and first break in 3 years and starting to allow myself to get excited. Any lowering of the flight price, tips on how to get cheaper upper class tickets or general helpfulness all muuuuuuuch appreciated. I can't wait to see my friends and family over there!

Electronic Tickets
Electronic tickets, or e-tickets, are used by an increasing number of top airlines. In simple terms when you choose an e-ticket through AirlineNetwork, we will automatically create an electronic record in the airline's computer system instead of printing a paper ticket. You will then be sent an e-ticket receipt instead of a ticket, which, you will need to check in with at the airport.
E-tickets offer several key advantages
[LIST]
[*]More Convenient You do not have to wait for your tickets to arrive
[*]More Peace of Mind No need for a paper ticket, eliminating worry of leaving them behind or losing them[/LIST] Paper Ticket
Traditional paper based ticket (may incur surcharge).
Ticket on Departure (TOD)
A ticket on departure (TOD) is allocated for charter flights booked within 14 days of their departure date and should be collected from the airlines service desk at the airport.

That is a super price, but think direct is the only way really, as I don't think I'd be able to get off the plane, walk to next plane etc. I'd love to go to Dubai one day, but I don't think I'll be able to this year.
Thank you ever so much for looking. I've been doing ebookers, opodo (found a £25 voucher which brings it to £2,091 and poss some quidco), expedia. If only a magic fairy gave me 24,000 airmiles I'd be sorted!

Edit: response to your first post (haven't totally got round to working out this quote thing properly!)

That's really helpful, I haven't heard of them (netflights) before, every bit of saving counts. Great thing is friends and family out there so I don't have to pay for hotel which just about makes this feasable.

They used to be called the Airline Network, so no worries there :)

Thank you so much, I hope it'll work out, I'm really nervous - not of flying as that's a doddle, but the whole journey whilst still not very well, but really excited as the idea of sunshine just makes me go weak at the knees as well as a change of scenery. You get 3% cashback on flights at net flights so I think that will be the best price, you're a star for helping and looking. Big thank you.
