Angels generally do not have a physical or fleshy cloak unlike humans.
Correct, they are spiritual beings in heaven BUT we know that they assume human form on Earth and we can't even tell the difference between them and actual humans.
There is no passage in the bible that states that Spiritual beings can NOT be killed NOR that, when in physical bodies, can't be killed either.
Now, we know that, at the end of times, the rebellious angels will be destroyed in the lake of fire.
Now some will say that the devil and angels are being tortured for all eternity and that may be the case BUT 2 Thessalonians mentions:
These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,
Who are "these" ? those that do not obey the Gospel, which would include angels of course.
I understand that there is a bit of a gray area here, do angels simply suffer eternal punishment and not die? maybe BUT that doesn't have anything to do with them being immortal because even mortals will be in the lake of fire either tormented for all eternity or destroyed ( however you interpret this).
My view is that the bible does NOT say that Angels can't die and most definitely doesn't say that can't have a physical death when they assume human form.
As for Luke 20:
34 And Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, 35 but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, 36 for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons[g] of the resurrection.
We have to understand the difference between not dying with not being killed/destroyed as showed above.
Not saying that the subject isn't tricky, just simply that God can most certainly end the existence of ANYTHING that he created if it is the right thing to do.
