Earning PLAT on 2nd to last leg of international Trip - Lounge Access?


I signed up for the Plat Challenge last week (one month too late to do it for free). I then jumped on a plane to Thailand. On the return trip, I fly to HKK, followed by SFO, then finally LAX.

I will earn the neccesary points to reach my plat challenge on the flight from HKK to SFO - And while in SFO i have a 3.5 hour layover. Since at that time i would technically be a PLAT - would i be able to get lounge access? Or will i need to wait until my flights post? (I fly back out to BKK 1 week later, so I should be good by then).

Thanks in advance!
