New checked bag policy?

I checked American Airlines website for any updates or information because hubby is flying to Michigan on Thurs to visit family. A friend mentioned to me that they are now charging for check in baggages. And yes they are really charging now...
I went to Hawaiianairlines.com too (for Winter & I are going back to Hawaii next month) and it's the same. The only good thing is that we purchased our tickets early this year and we won't be charged for anything yet. Hubby is good to go coz no charge for Military active duty.... well for American Airlines. I have to check other airlines too. This sucks, $25 for a 2nd checked bag? It's ridiculous, that's a lot of money!
