http://youtube.com/watch?v=aC2cGw7xfFI is a cockpit video of LOT 408 DUS-WAW ERJ-145 landing at WAW.

My question is, I heard about 'sterile cockpit' policy below 10.000 ft, which means no flight unrelated conversation in the cocpit. The case shown in the video is the exact opposite. The pilots chatter, make jokes, comment on ATC transmissions of other aircraft, etc. Is this routine ? Is this a mild breaking of the code ? Or is it outrageous ?

The flight in question is a late night arrival at the home airport. I am just wondering if this sort of relaxed atmoshere while on final approach is standard. Could this happen on a US airline flight into a busy hub airport, e.g. ORD or LAX?

The only time this rule is truly followed is when a FAA representative is riding the jumpseat!
An approach in visual conditions isn't difficult, even at a busy airport. Pilots know when to shut their traps and concentrate, e.g. actual instrument conditions in a busy terminal environment.

Sure, there should be "no unessential talking" below 10'000ft, as in any moments of heavy workload. On the other side, don't see it to narrow. The one or other word can be spoken, as long as everything stays under complete control and there is no risk of distraction from the target. I would not rate now the work shown here by our colleagues from LOT as departing in a way from the track that an intervention has to be taken.

The best results on work, regardless if it's aviation or anything else. are most of the times achieved when everybody was happy on the job and with this goes fun in an adequate portion as well  Wink
