My boss has  MacBook Air and he moves between 2 companies with separate windows domains and active directories.  Right now he is only joined to one domain.  Can he join a second domain and login to one or the other?  How would this be set up?

I am guessing you would have to set up two separate users on the Mac, one for each domain, and use Fast User Switching.

Alternatively, you might have more luck using Thursby's AdmitMac software. I have seen many reports that it connects to Active Directory much more reliably than the builtin in Mac software. You download a free trial here:  http://www.thursby.com/products/admitmac

What's Fast User Switching?  Sorry, but I'm not familiar at all with Macs.
