Here is my code

$.ajax({
        url: 'https://api.flightstats.com/flex/schedules/rest/v1/json/flight/AA/100/departing/2013/10/4?appId=19d57e69&appKey=e0ea60854c1205af43fd7b1203005d59&callback=?',
        dataType: 'JSONP',
        jsonpCallback: 'jsonCallback',
        type : 'GET',
        async: false,
        crossDomain: true,
        success: function(data) {
            console.log(data);
        }
    });

What am I doing wrong? should I add or change anything in here?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Working fiddle:

http://jsfiddle.net/repjt/

$.ajax({
    url: 'https://api.flightstats.com/flex/schedules/rest/v1/jsonp/flight/AA/100/departing/2013/10/4?appId=19d57e69&appKey=e0ea60854c1205af43fd7b1203005d59',
    dataType: 'JSONP',
    jsonpCallback: 'callback',
    type: 'GET',
    success: function (data) {
        console.log(data);
    }
});

I had to manually set the callback to callback, since that’s all the remote service seems to support. I also changed the url to specify that I wanted jsonp.

You’re trying to access a JSON, not JSONP.

Notice the difference between your source:

https://api.flightstats.com/flex/schedules/rest/v1/json/flight/AA/100/departing/2013/10/4?appId=19d57e69&appKey=e0ea60854c1205af43fd7b1203005d59&callback=?

And actual JSONP (a wrapping function):

http://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?jsoncallback=processJSON&tags=monkey&tagmode=any&format=json

Search for JSON + CORS/Cross-domain policy and you will find hundreds of SO threads on this very topic.

I run this

var data = '{"rut" : "' + $('#cb_rut').val() + '" , "email" : "' + $('#email').val() + '" }';
var data = JSON.parse(data);

$.ajax({
    type: 'GET',
    url: 'linkserverApi',
    success: function(success) {
        console.log('Success!');
        console.log(success);
    },
    error: function() {
        console.log('Uh Oh!');
    },
    jsonp: 'jsonp'

});

And edit header in the response

‘Access-Control-Allow-Methods’ , ‘GET, POST, PUT, DELETE’

‘Access-Control-Max-Age’ , ‘3628800’

‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’, ‘websiteresponseUrl’

‘Content-Type’, ‘text/javascript; charset=utf8’
