they lease an airliner on tour, or rather, that's what they do when they're hopping around europe and the us.

They usually lease a plane during the tours. In between they will fly commercial often in business class. At the end of the last tour Edge flew back commercial on the same flight with many of the crew who were returning home.

They'd better check their lease.

Surprised any of them ever flies commercial, even when not touring. They could easily afford to use private jet services like NetJets. Hell, they could afford to simply purchase something like a Gulfstream, for both personal and corporate use between tours (though obviously a Gulfstream is too smalll for band and crew during tours)

I'm surprised they don't have their own jet, they've made how much over the years?

I'm sure they do at times when commercial doesn't fit with their schedule but there were pictures of Edge getting off of that flight chatting with Orlando Bloom who was also on the plane, and Bono has said that he often travels alone with no security flying business class. Most people probably just think he looks like Bono not thinking it really is him.

Edge spent all their money on a yacht. He "hearts" his yacht.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Bono said on the last tour that Edge landed on a spaceship and came out in Dublin
