Day Three at the High Court drew to a close with Heathrow Hub Ltd outlining its case to the review.
The company is arguing, through Rupert Warren QC, that its response for a direct line to join with the airport was not fully considered before the spur option was chosen.
Mr Warren called the consultation into HS2 "shambolic" adding that it complicated matters that a spur had been decided upon as part of Phase 1 but the route would form part of Phase 2.
He said: "Heathrow Hub is in favour of a direct link to Heathrow that will connect with High Speed 1 and give passengers terminal faculties at the hub.
"We feel an integrated policy (between rail and aviation) is needed here."
He added that the consultation under taken for HS2 was unlawful as submissions from his clients had been misinterpreted and therefore misrepresented to the Secretary of State before she made her decision.
