I don't think CK gets it free either do they? US airlines treat frequent travelers like garbage is probably the only answer

CK gets admirals club for “free"

Match your status to avianca Brazil. Then you'll get free lounge access

Since most us airlines give free upgrades (when available) on domestic flights they do not give lounge access. In the EU, domestic (inside EU) flights do not have a true first class option usually so lounge access is the substituted benefit

Because GS is not that special.
