    I can bend my MBA 160 degrees without any force (as normal) and the screen is okay, nothing is cracked, can everyone do this, and should i be concerned?

    Do not do that! You are going to loosen the hinge.

    Your hinge is defective and almost certainly qualifies for Apple's MacBook Air repair extension program.

    It will eventually break... sooner rather than later since it's doing that. Most likely the hinge is broken inside of it, but the aluminum casing hasn't yet given way. I would definitely take it in before something else happens that allows them to get out of fixing it properly. For example, you drop it and put a 1/16" deep dent in the corner and they blame it on you.

    Good luck.
