Take a look at the teardowns for both machines over at ifixit. That should give you an idea whether it's possible or not.

I would question the effort, though - it may be easier, faster (and perhaps even cheaper, considering the time spent on research and actually doing the swap) to get a fully working 2011 MBA (or newer) instead to replace the dead 2010...
