American’s New Travel Fees – Retroactive?

According to news reports, American Airlines has decided to add a $15 charge for carry on luggage. This is in addition to a new $25 charge for a 2nd piece of checked luggage. Months ago, my fiancé and I purchased tickets on American to Maui for our honeymoon. Who wants to bet they won't try to charge us an extra $220 for my flights ((2 carry ons ($30) + 2 checked luggage ($50)X 2 ways)?

As I understand Department of Transportation rules, retroactive fees are illegal; however, I anticipate an argument coming on.
