You stated in your OP ''and you have to leave Thailand ''

 

Surely that is the same thing as being forced, is it not??

No, you were granted permission for temporary stay in the kingdom
the duration of stay has already been extended to allow you sufficient time to leave
there is no Force being used to get everyone out, there is no cull
you can just as easy stay if you wish and suffer the consequences later
but enough on this off topic subject

Can you actually fly anywhere out of Thailand at the moment ? My friend was due to fly to the UK on British Airways in June, they postponed to 2nd July, then 2nd August and this weekend he got an email saying it would now be September but his medical insurance has expired and he needs to return but he's already paid BA for his flight. (He is 80 this year and so far has been unable to buy insurance without it costing him an arm and a leg, pun intended !)

If there are no flights in to Thailand are airlines going to fly here empty to take people to the 26 allowed countries or any other countries ?

Yes, plenty of flights OUT of Thailand, limited days and airlines,
and of course you still run the risk of cancellations

Exactly, we all should be planning for all possibilities 
see the links above for more info,
Many countries do not require testing or quarantine, if you can find and afford the flights to reach them

I reviewed the IATA map - but are you (or anyone) aware of any link to a site that includes projections based on dates some countries have set, when incoming-travel will be permitted again - and with what restrictions?

I haven't had much luck with web-searches - mostly old and useless info.

 

Edit:  I missed this one up-thread - has some "opening soon":

Flights are still happening, some being filled with cargo
The 26 or so countries that currently have no restrictions are not necessarily the places you can fly to from BKK
so may require you to transit through other countries to reach them
many countries allow you to transit but not enter

Example:
Bangkok to Tanzania
you fly via Ethiopia
