In this paper, we consider the new online scheduling model with linear lookahead intervals, which has the character that at any time $t$, one can foresee the jobs that will coming in the time interval $(t, \lambda t+\beta ]$ with $\lambda\geq1, \beta\geq 0$. We consider online scheduling of unit length jobs on $m$ identical parallel-batch machines under this new lookahead model to minimize the maximum flowtime and the makespan, respectively. We give some lower bounds for these problems with the batch capacity $b = \infty$ and $b<\infty$, respectively. And for the bounded model to minimize makespan, we give an online algorithm with competitive ratio $1+\alpha$ for $1\leq \lambda <4/3, 0\leq \beta\leq \frac{4-3\lambda}{6}$ and $\frac{3}{2}$ for $\lambda\geq1, 0\leq\beta<1$, where $\alpha$ is the positive root of $\lambda\alpha^2+(\lambda+\beta)\alpha+\beta-1 = 0$. The online algorithm is best possible when $1\leq \lambda <4/3, 0\leq \beta\leq \frac{4-3\lambda}{6}$.
