Is it normal to say "mayday" at the end of the callsign each time?

same here, perhaps a standard ICAO procedure to distinguish the callsign since the frequency wasn't made exclusive to the mayday call?

It's a normal ICAO and europeen procedure to prefix the call sign with the PAN or MD to make sure that any aircraft who's checking in will be aware of the prevailing situation and make sure as well that any ATC involved will be aware in case of a frequency change even though changing the freq during an emergency is not usual.

Here's another example of a mayday with this Thomson flight where the crew pefix their call sign with the mayday key word.

Thanks for the info flaps as I was also confused by the Mayday suffix attached to the Air France callsign.   

Nice audio snag!!

Good grief! I hope there are no environmentalists on this board angered over the fuel dump.   grin

Air France reported, that the engine had not been on fire, the cause of the fire alert is under investigation.
