Its the logic that beats me

Roughly an year back, the Aviation Ministry decided to rename Indian Airlines as 'Indian'. I always wondered what could have initiated this move. One can understand the need IA felt to go for a major revamp, considering their pathetic services, decades old flights, and rather poor customer service.
Had IA felt the need to get rid of this poor image, then they should be focusing more on improving its services on those aspects. Instead, choosing to rename Indian Airlines as 'Indian' and changing the colours will not be taking it anywhere. Whats the logic behind dropping the 'Airlines' tag from its name anyway? Probably the higher echelons of IA felt that the services they offered are way below that of what a national carrier should be offering, so much so that they do not even deserved to be called an Airlines and therefore decided to correct the anomaly in its name by dropping the 'Airlines' tag?
Moreover, imagine the situation whenever the carrier is mentioned. Cant get stranger than this!

P.S.: Read this post by Raj about the 'Indian'isation of the Indian Airlines. Amazingly humourous!!
