Neither pilot had financial or life style changes leading up to the flight. The First Officer had a life insurance policy, the Captain didn't. The FO
didn't have much in savings. He spent a lot on his cars.
As far as the aircraft goes, the biggest issue prior to the flight was that the pinger battery on the FDR expired a year prior to the last flight.
There's more but those are the highlights so far.
