Quoting LAXintl (Reply 1): Why ?? Just stay in transit, follow the signs and catch the bus that runs to T-5. Have done two AA-BA connections this pretty painlessly in 30-40mins.
I don't think i can do that, i am booking 2 separate flights for my journey. No interlining flights and my bags will not be checked thru. Think i have to clear baggage and immigration first. Or am i wrong?

Having separate tickets should not matter. SQ-BA do interline as carriers so if you show your onward BA ticket when checking in for SQ, they should easily be able to tag your bags to PRG. At LHR you can check in and get your boarding pass at the BA transfer facilities.
Otherwise, yes you would have to enter the UK, pick up your bags, and transfer to T-5 street side -- a much more time consuming and complex process.
