    No. It's only used as a distress call or call for help.

    AFAIK mayday is an anglicized version of the French m'aidez (help me) or m'aider (to render help to me).

    hope this helps.

    "Mayday" is a call for emergency help. Extreme emergency with need of immediate help is indicated by this single word.
