I have tried this several times and unfortunately been refused all the times since post Covid reopening (worked before).

At one point I had PP via Platinum, LoungeKey via HSBC Premier World Elite and Dragon Pass via Barclaycard (so also tried directly at Plaza Premium aside of the PP lounges).

The issues is that the lounge operator “can” only accept one membership for BP (not convinced there is an actual system block as I have seen it scanned with no issues before COVID), so they cannot accept multiple membership for the same BP (and they cannot obviously scan a membership card without associating that entry to a BP with a same name as part of the entry party).

PS I have since downgraded my HSBC PWE card because it became useless and did the same with the BarclayCard Avios card. I usually needed a 5th entry for my youngest and since stopping me from using various membership at the time, I have had lounges in Italy and Qatar let the youngest in as a favour a couple of times, but when travelling a couple of weeks ago with three kids alone, was actually charged two entry extra (as a side note at Plaza Premium, after trying to use the dragon pass code for the two extra entries and being refused, the lounge dragon offered me to let me buy two entry at the door at £19 each (Plaza Premium will only accept two entries per Platinum card, no options to scan more people in and getting charged £20 each for guest 3 and over)
