JetBlue has published economy, and business class award charts for redeeming TrueBlue points on Hawaiian Airlines operated flights. While you've been able to redeem TrueBlue points for Hawaiian flights, the price was correlated to the cash cost of the ticket, much like how a JetBlue award is priced, and you'd need to call up get the exact price.
TrueBlue Award Charts for Hawaiian Flights
You'll still need to call JetBlue to complete a booking, 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583), however, you'll at least know the price and can, in theory, check award availability before calling through a service such as ExpertFlyer. Our assumption is that award space offered up by Hawaiian to their partners will be the same bucket from which that JetBlue will pull.

Business/First Class Award Chart
We see this as both a positive and a negative. On one side we like the idea that there is a standard / published award chart where there is potential for outsized value from TrueBlue points. If award space is available, but the cash price of a ticket is unusually high, this could be a big win.
At the same time, the model where the cost of a ticket in points was directly related to the cash price, was consistent to how the TrueBlue program operated with its own flights, and still does.
Hawaiian partners with many airlines, including Korean, so be sure to check out what it'd otherwise cost you with another program before you jump into a boking with JetBlue TrueBlue.
