"U2 Airways" - U2

Promotional Release

Track Listing:

Background Information

This 3-inch promotional single was released in Taiwan for promotion of the “All That You Can’t Leave Behind” record launch. The single contains three tracks, “Beautiful Day”, “When I Look at the World” and “Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of” from the album. In all cases, the songs released here are the same as those found on the album.

The album “All That You Can’t Leave Behind” had a travel theme throughout it’s promotion, including the cover picture shot at Charles de Gaulle airport in France. This promotional release was a unique spin on the whole travel theme of the album. The packaging for the CD is a three-fold, four-panel document, which is reminiscent of an older airline ticket holder. (Back before everything went electronic and print your own.) Inside the outer holder is a booklet that resembles an old style ticket. The title “U2 Airways” comes from the outer side of the holder where there is a logo that says “U2 Airways: The direct way to experience a beautiful day”, and the name of the album printed below. The inside of the holder itself contains pictures of the past album catalog by U2 and information about each album. When fully unfolded the back of the holder contains a map of the Temple Bar area of Dublin as well.

The interior booklet features photos from the album, and continues the airline theme with markings such as “boarding pass”, “gate number” etc. just as you would see in a boarding pass.
