I was transiting at DOH this morning, with J ticket upgraded using Qpoint, being told by staff at AM escalator that no more AM access but was advised to check at reception "because of your platinum card" and with some keystrokes by reception staff I was then admitted into AM lounge.

I have however a different understanding while chatting with staff at escalator. The reason for platinum member access with upgraded J ticket is NOT a policy but rather because at that particular time (around midnight) the usual "First class lounge" for platinum members could be overcrowded but the system might not have yet adjusted to allow platinum members accessing AM, which is a temporary measure. In other words, recently upgraded J tickets have indeed no access into AM lounge, not even for platinum members.
