I currently have CS6 installed on a Mac Book and I would like to buy/install CC on my Mac Air. Will this work 2 subscriptions on 2 different laptops?

Yes, you can have CC activated on 2 machines at a time.

I actually don't want to run CC on 2 machines. I have CS6 on my MacBook which I would like to keep but I want to buy CC for my Mac Air. Can you have two separate subscriptions without them interfering with each other when opening?

CS6 is really pretty old so you'd be better off using CC on both machines. Your CS6 license wouldn't go anywhere as it was a perpetual license, but yes, both can be installed on different machines.

A single subscription allows you to run CS6 on one machine and up-to-date CC2017 on another.
