Are you positive that you're departing out of T5? Many flights to LHR depart out of the domestic terminals.

british air for both flights but the indy to ohare flight is through ba but it is an american airlines eagle flight....it does appear that the BA flight to heathrow (im headed to edinburgh) is BA and appears to be out of 5..

BA flies to LHR out of both T3 and T5. Your connection is tight but doable. Your luggage will be checked through to LHR. When you get to ORD, go direct to the tram and out to T5. T5 will be the first stop.

If the first flight is on time you should have enough time to make the transfer. I think I recollect reading before that BA even runs a shuttle for their own flights between Terminal 3 and Terminal 5, this has come up before, so you could stay airside if true.

BA runs a shuttle for passengers like you. Use it so you can stay air side and skip security and the tram.
