This really doesn't have anything to do with listening so please forgive me but I reakky want to know. I'm looking at a list of flights that are supposed to arrive at JFK one of them is Alaska airlines 1270. Is there a reason im not seeing this flight on JFK's current flight map? All other  flights are showing up.

What website are you using?  There are several flight tracker web sites available.

Don't know where you're looking but on flightstats you can find the following:

 AS 1270 - Alaska Airlines 1270
 Scheduled   On-time
Departure Status DetailsArrival Status Details
(SFO) SFO International Airport(JFK) John F. Kennedy International Airport
San Francisco, CA, USNew York, NY, US
Scheduled:    3:15 PM - Fri Jun 12, 2009Scheduled:    11:59 PM - Fri Jun 12, 2009
Estimated:    3:29 PM - Fri Jun 12, 2009 (runway)Estimated:    11:20 PM - Fri Jun 12, 2009 (runway)
http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlightExtendedDetails.do?id=162207571&airlineCode=AS&flightNumber=1270

MY NOTE: It is a codeshare flight and may not show up in tracking as Alaska Airlines 1270. It should, however show up in tracking as American Airlines 20. The last time a flight track was shown for Alaska Airlines 1270 on flightstats was sometime
end of May.

It was a codeshare flight:

Out of the Mac dictionary:

codeshare |ˈkōdˌ sh e(ə)r| noun
a marketing arrangement in which two airlines sell seats on a flight that one of them operates : [as adj.] Qantas is a codeshare partner with both American Airlines and Alaska Airlines in North America.
• a flight or aircraft in which such an arrangement is in effect.

Airlines may sell flights operated by other airlines: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_share  It shows up under all flight numbers at the airport, but it is only one plane that flies and ATC only uses the flight number of the operating carrier. (In Europe ATC flight numbers can be completely different from the numbers shown to the passengers.)

This also applies to European carriers operating into N. America and elsewhere.  KLM and BA use different callsigns frequently.
