It is similar to J'ai faim or J'ai soif. The same grammar rule applies. The use of être changes the whole meaning of the phrase. Regardez cela: Avoir raison/tort/de la chance = To be right/wrong/lucky (French Expressions with avoir)

Chanceuse is used by the Parliament of Canada on its website: "Certains diront qu'elle est chanceuse puisque l'attente moyenne pour une audience est de 19 mois et qu'elle a attendu neuf mois de moins que [...]", so why does KwizIQ say elle a de la chance is the only option?
