Inertia helps, because if you're doing 300 knots in level flight, you're not stalling, if you're doing 300 knots and falling, you are. Basically you're looking at the difference between where the nose is pointing and where the aircraft is going, if it's more than 15 degrees in an airliner you're probably in a stall.

You should be able to get the right information from the inertial navigation system, which I think are still used as a back-up to the GPS.
