A1370 2011 MacBook Air Flashing Question mark, no Recovery or Boot

So I know the question mark folder thing has been beaten to death, but I haven't found a forum relating to my issue. It's a Mid-2011 Macbook Air Core i5. One day it stopped booting up and gave me the blank white screen. After about 60 seconds, the blinking folder with a question mark comes on.

Great, no problem. I've tried to boot in recovery mode, I've tried to boot in safe mode, I've tried to reset everything, I created a boot drive with an external drive from my other mac, however when I boot up while holding the option key, nothing comes up. I have absolutely no option to try to boot from the external drive. I even took out the SSD thinking it was still searching there while keeping the external boot drive plugged in, and still, nothing, only a blinking folder with a question mark.

What could this be? I figure even if the SSD or ribbon connecter were fried (likely), I should still be able to boot from the external with the SSD pulled out, right?

Any help you guys can give would be immensely appreciated. Thanks!

You have done everything a professional Mac repairman like me would do. If it won't boot from an external you are up the creek and I have no help to offer. I'm sorry.

when you hold the option key, did you see the arrow pointer but do not show any disks? If no means your keyboard maybe faulty. you can try both the left and right option key one at a time and see if you get a response. if not use an external apple usb keyboard. take note that MacBook air boot up time is quite quick so you must be holding the option key already when you press the power button otherwise you will lose that window to enter boot option menu.
