Flying with a soon to expire passport

My husband and I have a trip planned to Cancun in October. Our passports expire at the end of November. Mexico only requires that passports be good during the length of travel but I've just been made aware that sometime airlines enforce the "six-month expiration" rule. Our reservations are on American and I included the passport info when I booked the flights. Is this going to be a problem? Has anyone flown recently with soon to expire passports?

Best thing I can suggest is to contact the airline directly and ask.
