That's not really the case, however most major airports in the US already had conventional jet bridges before glass jet bridges became available. They're a fairly recent invention and it makes no sense to replace an old conventional jet bridge with a glass jet bridge. So those airports that already had jet bridges before glass jet bridges were invented still have the jet bridges they had before.
Only on recently built or renovated terminals you'll find glass jet bridges. That's not just in the USA by the way. Amsterdam doesn't have glass jet bridges as well because they already had jet bridges before.
