function start_el(&$output, $item, $depth, $args)

$class_names = join(

    and $class_names = ' class="'. esc_attr( $class_names ) . '"';

$output .= "<li id='menu-item-$item->ID' $class_names>";

$attributes  = '';

// insert thumbnail
// you may change this

// Since $output is called by reference we don't need to return anything.
$output .= apply_filters(
    'walker_nav_menu_start_el'

[cde] returns a boolean, and so i think you would like:

has_post_thumbnail
