Would it be a mistake to buy American Airlines tickets right now, for the upcoming December holidays?

My fiancee and I are looking to fly from Chicago to Hartford, this Christmas, and American Airlines current fares are crazy low (almost 80 bucks less, per person, per way).
Presumably, this is due to the trouble that AA has been having lately (with money, delayed/cancelled flights, pilot contract disputes, etc), and so I wonder if buying these super-cheap tickets right now would be problematic come December. Nevertheless, the incredibly cheap tickets are pretty alluring, given how much money we'll inevitably spend on the holidays themselves. Any thoughts?
