A Westjet Boeing 737-8 MAX, registration C-FEWJ performing flight WS-252 from Toronto,ON to Halifax,NS (Canada), was enroute about 30 minutes into the flight when a member of the operator's cabin crew, travelling as passenger, informed the crew about loud and abnormal noise from the left main gear. The crew consulted with maintenance suspecting the landing gear might have been damaged on departure, in the absense of abnormal indications the crew decided to continue the flight to destination. Descending through 10,000 feet on approach to Halifax the noise was heard again. The crew declared PAN PAN and requested emergency services to inspect the aircraft after coming to a stop on the runway. The aircraft landed safely and stopped, emergency services reported there was no visible damage to the landing gear, and the aircraft taxied to the apron.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance performed an inspection of the left hand main gear, found no faults and returned the aircraft to service.
