I'm going to suggest that is not the right way. We tried that in MEL, where the lounge dragons were being difficult and refused to change the FF no. and grant us access. We had to choose one or the other. This is what I suggest:

i am plat with EK and have an issue each time i go to a QF lounge here - as i always book dom flights with QF number and then try to get into lounge using EK Plat - have never had a problem - they just change the booking adding the EK code and then i am in - as soon as i am in i then go back on line and try to change it (if allowed doesnt always work) or just claim missing points later on - they used to just have a list and write the number on it and name etc but seem now to change the FF number when you go to the lounge - but i have never been denied! must be my smile?

I have had the opposite in the US, ie QF Gold/OW Sapphire booked an AA flight under my AAdvantage number (AAdvantage staus=basic) -> no lounge rights then change booking to QFF number -> all smiles. Even the lady at check-in said 'How are you ever supposed to get miles?'. When travelling with my wife and doing sums on miles/points/credits one of us often checks in as QFF and the other as AA so we try and get a little of the best of both worlds.

Always crazy. Credited CX flights (fare code C) to QFF, using my Marco Polo Diamond (OW Emerald, I have another QF Platinum) to gain entry to QF F lounge SYD and got redirected to J lounge, but later I showed lounge dragon my QF Platinum, I was in.
